SETH THOMAS TOWER CLOCKS 




HESE clocks are unsurpassed in quality of material 
and workmanship, and in accuracy of time-keeping. 
They are constructed upon the rules of the highest 
authorities in horology and no care or expense is 
spared by us in producing clocks that will, in every 
way, meet the most exacting and critical require- 
ments. 

As proof of this statement, we point to the fact 
that we have received the highest awards at all 
expositions in which we have been represented, both in this country and abroad. 
In addition to this expert testimony, we also have the testimony of hun- 
dreds of individuals and municipalities for whom we have installed clocks, 
giving unqualified praise to their excellence in all particulars. 

We take pleasure in printing, in the latter part of this catalog, a few 
expressions of praise and satisfaction received from various parties. 

In writing for prices and information, please state the diameter and num- 
ber of dials required, whether they are to be of glass, wood or iron, the weight 
of the bell or bells (if striking clock is desired), the interior dimensions of the 
tower and the amount of fall to be had for the weights. 

With this information we will be in a position to know what the exact 
requirements are in each individual case, and will be enabled to make an 
intelligent estimate for the clock boxed and delivered in New York City, or 
delivered and installed complete. 

Every clock that leaves our factory has been run and thoroughly tested 
and is guaranteed against original and mechanical defects for a period of 
five years. 

In offering our products to the public, it is not our intent or desire to put 
on the market clocks that are lower priced than those of other makers. Appre- 
ciating that there can be no better advertisement than a clock that performs 
satisfactorily, our aim will be always to produce clocks which (quality, dura- 
bility and perfection of construction considered) will prove to be the cheapest 
on the market. 



SETH THOMAS CLOCK COMPANY 



NUMERALS 

The numerals we furnish for wood or iron dials are made of cast metal 
(not wood). The face and sides are covered with the best of gold leaf to pre- 
vent tarnishing and are fastened on with brass screws. 

DIALS 

To look well and show plainly, dials should be one foot in diameter for 
every ten feet of elevation and be set out flush with or close to the line of the 
building or tower. Frequently the space available for dials is limited by rea- 
son of the architecture of the tower, so this rule cannot be strictly observed, but 
these proportions should be adhered to as nearly as possible. 



WOOD DIALS 

Wood dials should be made of well-seasoned wood, not over four inches s 
wide tongued and grooved, from one-half to seven-eighths inch thick, in two 
layers with grain crossed to prevent shrinkage, and firmly screwed together, 
smoothed painted and smalted. Paint the joints, when putting them together, 
with paint the same color the face of the dial is to be when finished. This pre- 
vents joints showing in case of shrinkage. The joints of the wood on face side 5 
of dials should run up and down so that rain will run off. Should dial be placed 
on the outside of building, it makes a better finish to put a moulding around the 
outside edge on the front. For conveniently getting at hands at any time from 
inside the tower, there should be a piece from twelve to fourteen inches square 
cut from each dial-plate, the lower edge about four inches above and directly 
over center of dial. This piece can be beveled at top and bottom to keep the 
rain our the sides can be straight. Screw a cleat over this piece on the inside 
to keep it in place. If the room be dark, one of these openings can be glazed 
to give light. We will furnish numerals and minute marks, or the dial com- 
plete, if desired. 

IRON DIALS 

Iron dials can be made of galvanized iron with a wood backing an inch or 
more thick, the full size of the dial. The numerals, etc., are the same as for 
wood dials We can furnish iron dials made in this way of any size. 






SETH THOMAS CLOCK COMPANY 



SKELETON METAL DIALS 

These dials may be varied in design and made of different metals. Two 
patterns are illustrated on page 9 ; one with Arabic figures (minute dots omit- 
ted), the other Roman. Our observation is, that it is better for seeing the 
time, to leave the center or space within the inner ring entirely clear. Skeleton 
dials should not be placed more than three or four inches from the face of the 
wall, for they require a backing to show to best advantage. The color of the 
dials and hands should be considered in connection with the color of the wall 
or background, with a view to obtaining the contrast desired. 

WHOLE PLATE GLASS DIALS 

These may be furnished with safety up to five feet in diameter. The 
numerals and minute marks are lettered on the surface in black or gold leaf 
of a durable finish. The backs are stippled with French zinc. 

GLASS 

The glass is three-eighths of an inch thick, ground on both sides. The 
center-piece and segments are of the same thickness and quality throughout, 
thus insuring an evenly diffused light when they are illuminated. 

ILLUMINATION OF DIALS 

It is not satisfactory to illuminate an opaque dial by throwing the light 
on the surface from the outside of the building. The dials should be of glass 
and the lights placed behind them. There is no fixed rule for the amount of 
candle-power required to illuminate any given diameter, for this depends upon 
the construction of the tower. So as not to cast a shadow, cross-beams and 
other obstructions should be kept back as far from the inner surface of the dial 
as possible. The dialroom should be painted white. 

AUTOMATIC LIGHT SWITCH 

The switch is controlled by the tower clock and is adjustable to suit the 
different seasons. It automatically turns on and off the lights to illuminate 
the dials for whatever hours desired. 

AUTOMATIC WINDING ATTACHMENT 

Whenever it is desired, we can furnish motors to wind both the strike and 
time sides of our clocks automatically. These are so arranged as to make the 
clocks practically self-winding.

SECTIONAL GLASS AND IRON DIALS 



SECTIONAL GLASS DIALS 



The openings for design illustrated above should be made in the multiple 
of six inches The frame, numerals and minute marks are made of iron or 
bronze The dial is divided into sections, which are rebated in the back to 
receive the glass. The glass is held in place with brass clamps. The joints of 
the frame are fastened together with iron bolts and filled with lead, making the 
dial, when installed, absolutely watertight.

ANGELUS 

In the year 1326, Pope John XXII. requested that the church bells be 
rung three times a day as an invitation to prayer, and the custom is kept at 
the present time. The Angelus striking is as follows: At six o'clock in the 
morning, again at noon, and at six o'clock in the evening — thus, three strokes, 
three times in succession, with a pause after each third stroke, and then nine 
strokes in succession, without pause between. This may be given on a bell 
which is used for the hours also. Sometimes a separate bell is provided to be 
used for the Angelus only. Our clock mechanism can be made to cover the 
requirements for this purpose. 

BELLS 

To allow free egress for the sound, the openings in the belfry or bell- 
chamber ought to be wide and extend, whenever feasible, to top and bottom 
of the room. If entirely open it is an advantage. When louvres or slats are 
used, it should be seen that they are not put too closely together, and are set at 
an angle which will no more than just overlap. 

The ceiling of the room should be placed as nearly as possible over the 
top of the openings, and the floor or bell deck be covered with copper or tin, 
or constructed of weather-proof material. 

A bell should be so suspended that its mouth (bottom part) will be above 
the level of the base of the openings. 

For reasons which may be readily understood, it is preferable to have 
separate rooms for the clock movement and the bell; the bellroom requiring 
to be open for the sound, the clockroom closed (except for light) to better pro- 
tect the movement from exposure to the weather. 

How far a bell can be heard is problematical. The chief things are to 
get a good clock and bell; have a properly constructed belfry, and the sound 
will carry to its full capacity. It is affected, of course, by obstructions (if any 
exist), by the lay of the land and direction of the wind.

QUARTER STRIKE CLOCKS 

WESTMINSTER CHIME 

A quarter-strike clock consists of a time train to operate the hands, the 
hour-strike train and the quarter-strike parts. They are practically independ- 
ent, except that the striking parts are controlled by the time train. To con- 
tain the whole, a larger frame is required than for a timepiece only, or for an 
hour strike. Three weights are required; the fall and amount of weights 
nefeclecl are about the same for both hour and quarter-strike parts. 

For the Westminster Chime four bells are required and a fifth may be 
added for the hour. The complete chime is struck as follows: four blows at 
the first quarter, eight at the second, twelve on the third, sixteen on the hour, 
and the hour on the heaviest bell. 

Our clocks can be made to strike different arrangements for the quarters. 



FOR TWO BELLS 

It is necessary to have two bells of sufficient difference in weight and tone 
so that the quarter can be distinguished from the hour. One blow is generally 
struck for the first quarter, two at the half, three at the third quarter and then 
the hour; or, two at the first quarter, four at the half, etc., which produces a 
ding-dong effect. A third bell may be added for the hour strike. 



AUTOMATIC SILENCING DEVICE 

This silencing device is attached to the tower clock and it will automatic- 
ally silence and release the striking trains for whatever hour desired. 



HAND SILENCING DEVICE 

This hand switch is only used where it is necessary to stop the clock strik- 
ing for special occasions.

DIRECTIONS 

MOVEMENT. — Tower Clock movements should always be placed upon 
a firm floor or platform, and in such a position that connections can be made 
with the dials, either above or below — above is the best. The connection to the 
dial gearing is made from the upright shaft on the movement with rods and 
the universal joints. The universal joints enable the connecting rods to be 
run on an angle, avoiding bell or other obstruction. See illustration of clocks 
in position. 

THE CONNECTING RODS. The rods should be of such length as 
to allow end shake in the sliding couplings, in case of contraction or expan- 
sion of the rods or building. Gas pipe is most frequently used if the rods are 
short or medium length, we sending couplings to correspond. When required 
in long lengths they can be of tin tubing soldered on to brass hubs, fitted to 
universal joints. 

DIALS. — See pages 6, 7. 

WEIGHTS.— See page 21. 

PENDULUM. — In case the pendulum bob is below the floor it should 
be enclosed in a close case sufficiently large to allow plenty of room for vibra- 
tion. It should be six to eight inches in the clear, on all sides (pendulum 
swinging), to allow the air to circulate when removed by action of the bob. 

PULLEYS. — It is preferable to place the leading or first pulley as far 
from the movement as possible — the corcl works much better. The pulleys 
should be so secured that their grooves will be in line with the corcl so as to 
prevent friction or chafing of the cord in passing over. 

CORD. — The wire rope on the striking train usually requires two coils 
across the cylinder to run eight clays. The time train requires but one coil on 
the cylinder. 

HAMMER. — For a bell which is mounted to swing, the hammer should 
be placed so as to strike the bell through the standard or support opposite the 
wheel. It should be set on such an angle as to suit the shape of the bell at the 
sound bow. 

CHAIN GUIDE PULLEYS— Where possible the connections from 
the hammer-tail lever on the clock movement to the bell hammer should be 
in a straight line, but we send guide pulleys that may be used to carry the con- 




nections where the clock or bell has to be set at one side, or where the connec- 
tions need to pass obstructions in the tower. anrlham

WEIGHTS 

The exact amount of weight needed varies a little in different clocks and 
can only be determined by experiment. 

We give below an approximation of the weight required, and about the 
number of feet needed for its fall, to run these clocks eight days on a single 
cord : 

35 lbs 24 feet fall.

As it is not usually convenient to have so much fall as above, we can 
arrange with one-half, one-third or one-quarter, by doubling, trebling or quad- 
rupling the cord on pulleys, and increasing the weights in the same proportion. 

The weights are usually made of cast-iron blocks, slotted to fit on iron 
rods. Strong wooden boxes filled with stones or bits of iron may be used if 
room permits, but the weights are neatest and best of iron. We furnish wire 
rope which is constructed with a view to safety and durability.

AUTOMATIC WIND TOWER CLOCK 

TIME MOVEMENT 




The above cut illustrates our new type of electrically wound movement. 
In this type the necessity for a long weight run and heavy weights is 
eliminated. The entire winding operation is performed between the bed 
frame and floor. This type has all the advantages of the purely electric 
clock but at the same time depends for its motive power on the force of 
gravity, the most constant power known. All of the movements shown on 
the preceding pages can be built on this model if desired.

Like the electrically wound time movement illustrated on page 28, all 
of the striking movements shown on the preceding pages may be made self-

type of construction as applied to striking movements and will be found 
admirable where space is restricted; or where for any reason the self-winding 

feature is desired.

TESTIMONIALS 

(Copy oj letter uritten by the Hamilton Watch Company to H. C. Allen, Architect, Hot Springs, Va.) 

MR. H. C. ALLEN, LANCASTER, PA., Nov. 25, 1910. 

Hot Springs, Va. 
Dear Sir: I have the pleasure of your favor of the 22d and note fully its contents. 

About a year ago we bought from the Seth Thomas Clock Co. a large tower clock and we are glad to be 
able to say that it has given entire satisfaction. You know we are very particular on the question of time and 
this clock has not varied more than a few seconds in that many weeks. We believe you will do well by purchas- 
ing a clock from them as they are good people, will treat you right and you will receive full value for your 
money. 

Yours very truly, 

HAMILTON WATCH COMPANY.

MR. GORDON. ELGIN, ILL., May 3, 1911. 

Dear Sir: It affords me pleasure to say to you that the tower clock you installed in the Elgin Watch 
Factory tower is a very fine timekeeper. In fact it runs so near to perfection it is a marvel. 

The hands on the clock have not been moved except by the clock itself for more than three years and at 
the present time it is not one-tenth of a second from true time. It requires no effort to keep it within that limit 
by simply changing the little weight on the pendulum occasionally. This we do, for we desire the department 
signals to be given as near to absolutely correct time as possible. 

A finely equipped observatory, with all the appurtenances thereto, including several of the finest astronomical 
and mean-time clocks, with two astronomers in attendance, enables the Watch Co. to be provided with true 
star time for comparison. 

We show this clock to all visitors desiring to see it. 

Respectfully yours, 

CHAS. P. CORLISS.

ol the same ever since. It has given excellent service during all of the years that have intervened and its time 
variation has been very slight in any one month. 

We were so well pleased with the above clock that in 1910 we placed another in the Court House at Sheridan 
Ark., and so lar have had no trouble with same. 

This year we have placed the third one of your clocks at Star City, Ark.

Clock placed in position by your Mr. Buckley for us September 1907, beg leave to state that it is now nearly 4 
years since Mr. Buckley started it; that it has proved by far the most satisfactory article of merchandise that 
we ever had the pleasure of being connected with. It has never made us a moment's trouble, but has proved a 
source of pleasure and comfort all the years. The variation was never greater than 30 seconds a week, and for 
the last 3 years it has been down to less than 5 seconds per month, which factand record we considermost remark- 
able. We can certainly recommend the Seth Tower Clock without blushing.

Gentlemen: The clock you installed in the Court House Tower in this city has given better satisfaction 
than we had any idea a clock could be made to give. It has run several months now and the time variation 
has been so small that it has been hardly necessary to correct it. We oil and look after the movement once a 
month and the most we have had to change it in that length of time was about 50 seconds, which is close for a 
run ot lour weeks. I he work ot installing was very satisfactory and all done in a workmanlike manner We 
wish you success as we believe it is deserved and could give no city contemplating the purchase of a tower clock 
any better advice than to buy a Seth Thomas.

TOWER CLOCK AND CHIMES 
THE SETH THOMAS CLOCK CO. HILLSDALE, MICH., Sept. 4, 1911. 

Gentlemen: About the new tower clock and chimes you will bear in mind that these were the gift of Hon. 
William W. Mitchell, of Cadillac, Mich., and that Mr. Mitchell appointed a local committee of five men to 
negotiate the purchasing a tower clock. 

This committee was not limited in price, but was instructed to secure the finest quality that could be found. 
As a result, after a long and sharp competition, we purchased a No. 16 Seth Thomas clock. This plant was installed 
under very unfavorable conditions, in cold and stormy weather in March. The clock was started on April 1, 
since which it has run so accurately that our caretaker reports that it has not varied more than six seconds in the 
five months it has been running. Indeed, our people have come to say that this clock regulates the sun, moon 
and stars, and it is true that our resident commercial travelers and the farmers in the country set their watches 
by it.

New York, N. Y. 
Gentlemen: Tower Clock No. 1,234, which you installed for us in 1904 had daily and nightly pursued its 
even way with scarcely a moment's interruption, save in one instance. That was at the time of the great earth- 
quake in 1906, when the aspect of Mother Nature was severe enough to literally "stop a clock.'" A pendulum- 
rod of good California sugar pine was speedily substituted for the broken mahogany member, however, and the 
next day the clock was ticking away as usual. It is getting better adjusted each year and corrections of its 
time are now both small and rare. 

It is daily looked up to as an authority by as fine a body of students as this country possesses. In return 
it sounds its pleasant chimes with perfect regularity, preaching patience and punctuality and generously ex- 
tending its ministrations beyond the college campus, alike to dwellers in humble cottage and stately mansion. 

Yours very truly, 

LUELLA CLAY CARSON, President.

My Dear Sir: I think it is about thirteen years since I bought a Seth Thomas Clock — a large tower size. 
It has been most satisfactory in all that time as a time-piece. In fact, when properly adjusted and carefully 
oiled, it is the most wonderful time-piece I ever had any experience with. I have had a few good watches in 
my day but I never had one nor knew one that could keep time with this clock. But remember always it must 
be cared for in the matter of winding and oiling. My clock is obliged to keep time and ring the Westminster 
chimes quarterly. 

As a time-keeper it is boss. Were 1 again in the market for a clock with my Seth Thomas experience, 1 
would unhesitatingly purchase another. 

Yours truly, 

JOHN WALSH.
